Belts these days aren't as forgiving as the old V belts, when they go bad they glaze, slip, make noise etc. They may LQQk good but squeaking is first warning of belt going bad. I'd replace it for peace of mind. Re: Trans - have you ever had trans fluid and filter changed? It's one of the most overlooked maintenance items of all time. It should be changed every 50k, 30k if you tow a trailer. The $50 you spend on a trans filter service will save you a $2000 transmission job.

How stop the serpentine belt from fallen off the tensioner on a 1993 town & country. Is there a aftermarket pulley wheel for that tensioner to replace the flaw problems.

My 1991 Grand Caravan did that too. It had the 3.3L engine just the the T&C (91-93). The tensioner was the problem, hit a puddle on the right side and you'd feel the power steering go and then right away the engine would start to heat up. I tried making the belt come off, but could never duplicate it, only splashing through puddles of rain or wet slush would do it. I never found a tensioner with shoulders on it, but a new one like the original fixed it.

It depends on if the compressor clutch is causing the noise or if the belt is slipping. The spring loaded tensioner could be getting weak and not keeping the belt tight.

2003 Chrysler Town & Country CODE P1698

My wife has a 97 town and country. For about 2 weeks the instrument panel
was going out then coming back on. A couple days ago it got bad. The van would start and run only several seconds then the engine would shut down.
I took the Instrument panel out and it started and stayed running. I pulled the
PC board found the bad Soder connections and resodered them. Problem
was gone and the P1698 code erased. Best thing is it did not cost me anything and the van is fixed !

My engine belt slip off the pulleys. How do i fix

Replace the belt tensioner. This is a common problem. They also have a pulley available for the tensioner that has edges on it to keep this from happening.

2000 town & country van. serpintine belt slips off. turn corners in slush and away it goes.

Sounds like the belt is worn out or the tenchiner pully is worn out so replace the belt and if it still does it then you will have to change the pully, but most of the time when this happens it is the belt so replace the belt and you should be good to go.

My 99 Chrysler Town & Country Van Belts are squealing. When I turn on the van it does it loud. And I just got the belts done a couple of months ago. Can you guys help

Try to spray some Anti-Squeal belt dressing on the belt and see if that helps, if not you must likely have a pulley or tensioner thats going bad.
